PREFACE. 



THE manuscript book containing the following register of baptisms consists 
within its boards of 134 leaves. On the first page is the notice regarding 
the church of Bairnie and its officials, down to the word " beadle." This is 
followed by two and a half leaves of church collections and distributions. 
Those for 1763 appear to have been collections for the erection of the chapel, 
which seems to have had four windows, and from the entry " To Geo. Sangster 
for casting 7000 divots, 7s.," was probably roofed with turf. The collections in 
that year appear to have amounted to ^16 : o : i, with ^i : los., " Bp. Gerard's 
contribution to Udny," borrowed. A minute, dated Ellon, 3rd July 1766, of a 
meeting of the minister and elders of the chapel at Bairnie regarding the funds 
of the chapel, occupies the next page, which is followed by eight leaves of 
church collections and disbursements from 1766 to 1774. The next page con- 
tains the particulars regarding the church at Tillydesk, which are printed on 
page 7. The next page consists of contributions for the chapel, and the next 
page distributions, both evidently referring to Tillydesk, followed by six and a 
half leaves of church collections and distributions from 1776 to 1783, and after 
a blank leaf there is a leaf of " money received from the congregation at Tilly- 
desk, from 1783 to 1787." 

Turning to the other end of the book, the second leaf begins "List of 
baptisms," and on eleven and a half leaves are the baptisms as printed down to 
26th August 1783. The next page is blank, and on the next are the seven 
entries relating to the Kennedys. The rest of the book is blank. 

It is interesting to notice that, owing probably to the disturbed times after the 
'"45" the practice in Episcopal congregations of bringing infants to be baptised 
in the chapels had become neglected, and each priest for the most part travelled 
through the districts assigned to him for the time being, and baptised infants 
in their homes or at other convenient houses. The following Register therefore 
contains a list of baptisms celebrated by the priest to whom the Register 
belonged. The chapel is understood to have been removed from Bairnie to 
Tillydesk about the year 1776, and this is probable, as a new page is commenced 
in the end of 1775 for recording baptisms, and the handwriting is changed at 
this date. I have therefore ventured to allocate the baptisms prior to loth May 
1775 to the period when the chapel was at Bairnie, and those of a subsequent 
date to Tillydesk. 

On a loose page inside the book were the following Jacobite verses : — 

" lothjune 1739. 
" This day we celebrate, our Faiths being sealed, 
The Paracleteis {sic) being sent, and Truth revealed 
Seven times ten yearis, and three times three beside 
Have had their period since 'twas thus employed. 



ii Preface. 

What Floods of Comfort did that year abound ? 
With what success were Truth and Duty crowned ? 
This day ! a scene of joy and grief presents, 
Chequered, like Life with good and bad events : 
Glad were our Sires for a hoped Monarch born, 
We wail with grief his unperformed return ; 
But Heaven be praised, he lives, and yet may be 
The comfortable mean to make us free ; 
So may the faithful Prayers preferred to-day 
Draw down the Blessing then indulged to May ; 
And James restored give equal joy to June 
At any time next year, we'el count it soon." 

Seventy-nine years before 1739, /.<?., in 1660, Charles II. was restored on the 
29th of May. Why the loth of June was celebrated I am not aware. 

The chapels at Bairnie, and later at Tillydesk, were places of worship set up 
by the Episcopal congregation, which up to about the year 1705 worshipped in 
the Parish Church dt Ellon. After the " '45," information was laid in the proper 
quarters that services forbidden by the Acts 17 19 and 1746 were being held, 
and a company of soldiers was despatched from the garrison at Aberdeen, and 
the chapel at Ellon was demolished, as was also the chapel at Green of 
Udny, in a neighbouring parish. It was not until 1764 that the Ellon congre- 
gation ventured to set up another chapel, and this not in Ellon but some two 
miles or more out, in a retired spot on the road from Ellon to Dudwick Hill, in 
the district known as Bairnie. For some reason, about the year 1776, this 
chapel was given up and a move was made to Tillydesk, Turnerhall, some three 
miles further away^ but still in the parish. There the congregation was served 
by priests, who for a time also served the Old Deer congregation at Crichie^ 
but later the Udny congregation at Chapelhall, Esslemont. This latter ar- 
rangement continued until 1817, when, on the advice of Bishop Skinner, once 
himself the priest at Bairnie, a chapel was erected at Craighall, Ellon, to serve 
both the congregations, and at this date the chapels at Tillydesk and Chapelhall 
were dismantled and the woodwork was rouped. The site of the chapel at 
Tillydesk can be traced in the garden of the present farm of that name. 

The following Registers are in the custody of the Rev. Mr. Haslewood, 
Encumbent at Ellon : — 

I. — Relating to Tillydesk {Ellon) and Chapelhall of Esslemont {Udny).

Possibly the most interesting entries in the baptismal register are those 
relating to the family of John Skinner, afterwards Bishop at Aberdeen. 
According to the Dictionary of National Biography, he was the son of John 
Skinner, schoolmaster at Echt, afterwards minister at Longside. The future 
Bishop is stated to have been born at Longside on 17th May 1744. He was 
ordained deacon in 1763, priest in 1764, and appointed to the congregations of 
Ellon and Udny, and in 1775 to Longacre. His wife, whom he married on 
27th August 1764, was a daughter of William Robertson, Episcopal clergyman, 
Dundee. Bishop Skinner's second son, William, is stated in the Dictionary of 
National Biography to have been born at Aberdeen on 24th October 1778. It 
will be observed, however, he had a son of that name baptised on 20th July 

1773- 

The manuscript volume was among a number of other papers which 

belonged to a son of the Rev. Mr. Cruickshank. These were being burned, but 

a servant preserved the volume, which now belongs to Duncan Warrand, 

Esquire, 16 Buckingham Gate Gardens, London, S.W., and is published by 

his kind permission.
